Thank you to Archie Foley who wrote:

Pool Closed  -  1978

"The pool closed at the end of the 1978 season.  As your correspondent said, the pool was doomed when the electricity generating station closed in March 1977. 

The electricity generating station was beside Portobello Bathing Pool.  Heat from the generating station had been used to heat the sea water in the bathing pool.
